Messaging was sent to families with Juniors and Seniors last week about the Seal of Biliteracy. We are proud to share that Nashoba will be implementing this initiative this year. See the link to the Seal of Biliteracy Informational Letter.

Happy Diwali to all those families and students who are celebrating!

Developing the next generation of people who want to save the world.

High school juniors and seniors from the following Massachusetts schools, Hudson HS, Nashoba Regional HS, Maynard HS, and Marlborough HS have the opportunity to participate in our annual contest. Participants pay a registration fee and attend two 3 hour long lecture sessions on 2 different weekend days on January 15 and 29, 2022.

One set of lectures is taught by Dr. Lisse at a medical school level on diseases, such as malaria, parasitic infections, TB, and HIV/AIDS which are all too common in the Developing World. The other set of lectures is on all things Malawi (economy, geography, history, culture, etc.) and is taught by Jennifer Hardy.

Following the second set of lectures, the students are given a multiple choice test and the person who achieves the highest score gets to go to Malawi for free with the medical mission team. Other participants of the contest are invited to come along but must pay their own way. Almost all choose to come along. We take a maximum of 12 students altogether.

This once in a lifetime experience for these high school juniors and seniors is life changing—intended to help produce the next generation of those dedicated to making the world a better place.

Due to a scheduling conflict, we are rescheduling the first date of the Bridges to Malawi contest from Saturday Nov 5 to Sunday Nov 6 with a new time from 1pm to 4:30pm, still at the First United Methodist Church of Hudson at 34 Felton Street in Hudson. The date, time, and place of the 2nd set of lectures remains the same on Saturday Nov 12 from 6pm to 10pm.

Amended registration forms are available in the Guidance office.
